"What can I Do With It?": Vocational Counseling for Language Students.
Harrison, Ann Tukey
Several traditional attitudes of guidance counselors and teachers concerning vocational opportunities available to language students are seen as being no longer viable in the light of society's rapidly changing vocational demands. Language students are urged not to consider teaching as a source of certain employment, particularly in view of the decline in enrollment in existing language programs. Other traditional sources of employment are equally placed in doubt. Three guiding questions are formulated to help the student determine his real interest in learning a foreign language: (1) What type of adult role does the student envision for himself?; (2) What most interests the student in foreign language study?; and (3) How much does the language student plan to use his language skills? The answers to these questions will help determine the vocational opportunities available to language students. (RL)
